Every believer knows this basic truth: God frowns against sexual immorality. His stand hasn’t change. His desire is for us to live a sexually pure lifestyle. A life free from pre-marital sex, pornography, masturbation and sexting. This is one of the reasons Jesus was sent to die for us. He came that the power that causes us to respond to sin may be destroyed. Therefore we become free from sin. 

So what happened? Why do believers still struggle with these sins? Since we have accepted Jesus, why do we have these habits clinging to us? 

The solution is in a continual renewal of our minds.

It doesn’t matter if yesterday, you still dabbled into that sexual act, you can rise again and take the right steps to get into the life Christ desires of you. A life free from every kind of sexual perversion.

We hold Christ by His word and our faith is in His finished works. If he says our bodies are dead to sin, then they are. The victory that overcomes the world is our faith and faith comes through the Word. 

I have penned down seven scriptures that you can meditate on. (You can find more in the Bible, especially the epistles of Paul) As you continue to let these words fill your heart, you’ll come face to face with God’s transforming power. 

1. Romans 6: 14

For sin shall not have dominion over you for you are not under the law but under grace. 

2. 1 Corinthians 6:19

For ye are bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body and in your Spirit which are God’s.

3 Galatians 2: 20

I am crucified with Christ. Nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ live th in me: and the life I live, I live by faith of the Son of God who loved me, and gave himself for me. 

4.  Isaiah 41: 10

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: Be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yeah, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. 

5.  2 Corinthians 5:21

For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 

6. Romans 8:10

And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 

7. 1 John 5:4

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith. 


You cannot expect to live continually in victory without feeding your mind with God’s word. 

Speak God’s word! Confess who you are Christ! Remind yourself continually of your place in Christ! Believe you can be sexually pure. 

Then watch how God will transform you from inside out.

To the unmarried, Yeah, we can do this. We can wait until our wedding night. We can refuse to awaken love until the time is right. We can please God with our bodies. 

Happy sexual purity day.
